Miami—SOMA at Brickell, a 418-unit apartment community at 145 SW 13th Street in Miami, has achieved LEED Silver certification. SOMA at Brickell was developed by Alliance Residential and Monogram Residential Trust, and was designed by MSA Architects.
SOMA at Brickell, formerly known as The Edge at Brickell, opened to new residents in 2015 after beginning construction early in 2014. With its eight floors, the new building offered a rare mid-rise option in Brickell’s generally high-rise oriented rental market.
Apartments in the property range from 514 square feet to 1,102 square feet in studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom layouts. Common amenities include a rooftop pool and cabana area with grills, a cyber cafe, fitness and yoga studios.
Plaza Construction oversaw the building of the property, and its LEED application. To qualify for LEED Silver, a project must and earn points in nine main categories: integrative process; location and transportation; sustainable site; water efficiency; energy and atmosphere; materials and resources; indoor environmental quality; innovation; and regional priority.
Plaza is currently working on a number of other South Florida projects, including the 62-story One Thousand Museum by Zaha Hadid Architects, One Ocean and Marea Condominiums, and The Ritz-Carlton Residences Miami Beach. The company also recently completed the AC Hotel Miami Beach, Aloft South Beach and The Daily Food Creative Co.
